    [quote user="bstorer"][quote user="Ben L."]And then people slowly lost interest as it was published.[/quote]I lost interest before it was cool. [/quote] I never listened to it, so does that mean I never lost interest? or that I always lost interest? Somewhere there is a cat that I feel kinship with.

After coming back home i gave black and blues to my customer care highlighting my issue. They pleaded me saying that the problem is not with them. ...

  • Re: Talkback radio advertising

    [quote user="mott555"]I've used New Relic in the past, and it's a decent software suite if you use it correctly. I liked having a screen showing all our servers with their current load/response time/etc. I do find it very strange that they're advertising on talk radio. [/quote]As per Boomzilla, advertising at that time of day ...

  • Talkback radio advertising

    So I am on my way to the airport at 5AM on a Saturday at the start of a business trip, and I am listening to the local news talk radio station. Which (for those of you outside the US) is a station that during the day plays Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage and other such commentators of a "conservative" nature ...

  • Re: Remember Bitcoin?

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]The point is, in the US those subregions are *politically independent*. In Europe, they are not.[/quote]IMHO this underlies a lot of issues in the US. People don't know whether they want to belong to a country or a state. If you want to be an independent state then be one. But if you want to belong to a ...

  • I know it's VBA, but really?!?

    I'm digging through a reporting spreadsheet into order to find out what makes it tick. The following is typical of what I am finding: Public Function Get_DateRange(pblnPrev As Boolean) If Not pblnPrev Then FirstShiftStart = Format(strShiftStartTime, "hh:mm:ss") SecondShiftStart = Format(strShiftEndTime, ...

  • Re: Failusion: GUI design or "Fancy is more important than usability."

    [quote user="Mcoder"]And that's the main problem. Dice does not understand that the readership is the product, and is not focusing on it. [/quote] I think that they do understand and are deliberately choosing the current course of action. They have already written down the $12 million or so of good will they paid when then bought ...

  • Re: Failusion: GUI design or "Fancy is more important than usability."

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]What I don't get is why DICE is even TRYING to change Slashdot. They should save their money and let it fester, assuming the chore of maintaining the circa-1997 mess of Perl is less effort than the rewrite.[/quote]Because to Dice, Slashdot is not a website it is a revenue center. And someone in Dice believes ...
